  2. Food security in Africa needs a tailored approach, suggests new researchRead the original story w/Photo

    Feb 25, 2015 | EurekAlert!

    A one-size-fits-all approach to African agriculture development will not lead to growth, suggests research published in Food policy . The authors of the study say that instead of blindly adopting 'solutions' that have worked in other continents, governments and researchers should consider the context more closely and develop a tailored approach.

  3. Potential toxicity of cellulose nanocrystals examined in Industrial Biotechnology journalRead the original story w/Photo

    Feb 18, 2015 | EurekAlert!

    Novel nanomaterials derived from cellulose have many promising industrial applications, are biobased and biodegradable, and can be produced at relatively low cost. Their potential toxicity--whether ingested, inhaled, on contact with the skin, or on exposure to cells within the body--is a topic of intense discussion, and the latest evidence and insights on cellulose nanocrystal toxicity are presented in a Review article in Industrial Biotechnology , a peer-reviewed journal from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers .

  6. Meniscus regenerated with 3-D printed implantRead the original story w/Photo

    Dec 9, 2014 | EurekAlert!

    Columbia University Medical Center researchers have devised a way to replace the knee's protective lining, called the meniscus, using a personalized 3D-printed implant, or scaffold, infused with human growth factors that prompt the body to regenerate the lining on its own. The therapy, successfully tested in sheep, could provide the first effective and long-lasting repair of damaged menisci, which occur in millions of Americans each year and can lead to debilitating arthritis.

    Dec 7, 2014 | EurekAlert!

    In experiments comparing high tunnels with greenhouses for growing bedding plants, petunias finished in an unheated high tunnel were shorter and more compact than those grown in a heated... WEST LAFAYETTE, IN/ITHACA, NY - Energy costs account for one of the largest expenses in commercial greenhouse production of annual bedding plants. Naturally, bedding plant producers are searching for more energy-efficient production methods that can reduce fuel usage and increase profits.

  10. What role do insects play in Ebola virus transmission?Read the original story w/Photo

    Nov 4, 2014 | EurekAlert!

    Research on arthropod involvement in Ebola virus transmission has been quite limited, so many questions remain about whether flies and other insects play any role in the transmission of Ebola virus. If they do, how significant is this role, and what efforts need to be undertaken to reduce health risks? These questions and others will be discussed during a special session at Entomology 2014, the 62nd Annual Meeting of the Entomological Society of America , in Portland, Oregon.
